Academic & Institutional Affiliations

The UNSW School of Arts & Social Sciences is affiliated with a range of organisations in Australia and worldwide. Through our partnerships and collaboration, we aim to support and create global-minded students and researchers.

Institute for World Literature 

Home Institution: Harvard University 

The Institute for World Literature (IWL) has been created to explore the study of literature in a globalising world. As we enter the twenty-first century, our understanding of “world literature” has expanded beyond the classic canon of European masterpieces and entered a far-reaching inquiry into the variety of the world’s literary cultures and their distinctive reflections and refractions of the political, economic, and religious forces sweeping the globe.
